Micro and Nanotechnology research for you


CNM-CSIC participates in the EU HARVESTORE project. It is a five years FET-PROACTIVE project aiming at miniaturised mixed energy harvesting and storage devices using disruptive concepts from the emerging Nanoionics and Iontronics disciplines. These nano-enabled micro-energy systems with a footprint below 1 cm3 should power autonomous wireless sensor nodes for the future Internet of Things from ubiquitous heat and light sources. CNM is providing the technological resources and knowhow to integrate those devices in silicon technology allowing the highly dense features and scalability required for real miniaturization and massive deployment that will show their viability as a new technological paradigm of embedded energy.

IONS4SET project

Ion-irradiation-induced Si nanodot Self-Assembly for Hybrid SET-CMOS Technology. The aim of the IONS4SET project was to create single electron transistors for ultra-low power electronics so that the component using these optimized transistors delivers good performance at very low energy consumption. This type of transistor requires fabrication of nanopillars well beyond the state of the art, which implement a process compatible with the semiconductor industry (CMOS).

Two runs of wafers were completed last week for the POC4COVID and CONVAT projects.

Two runs of wafers were completed last week for the POC4COVID and CONVAT projects, led by Cesar Fernández and Carlos Domínguez; both related to the detection of COVID-19. These runs have been manufactured during the weeks of confinement. Thanks to all the staff of the institute and, above all, to the workers in the Clean Room for the effort made.

Thanks to the donation of 1,000 masks from the Chinese Students and Scholars Association.

The Chinese Students and Scholars Association has donated the IMB-CNM and other institutions some masks. Wenchao Duan is a PhD fellow at the ICMAB and IMB and he is member of this Association: "On the premise of respecting their wishes, the Association has donated masks mainly to hospitals, nursing homes, health departments and research institutes in Spain", he says.

The Chinese Students and Scholars Association in Barcelona is a non-profit student organization. It belongs to the Barcelona Regional Student Association and accepts the leadership of the Education Department of the Chinese Embassy in Madrid.

The Association has also donated 1,000 to the ICMAB and 3,000 masks to the Hospital del Mar, among others.

El IMB-CNM, nuevo miembro de la red SECPHO ha hecho hoy su presentación en una jornada con otros miembros.

SECPhO es un cluster que agrupa empresas, centros tecnológicos y grupos de investigación en el sector de la fotónica y la óptica.
